The last time Spurs and Sunderland met was the final day of the season last May, with Andre Villas-Boas' men coming out on top in a tight 1-0 victory.
Sunderland come into this match on the back of winning their first pre-season friendly against Swiss side Chiasso 1-0. It was a tough season last term for the Black Cats, but Paolo Di Canio’s men survived the drop after two fantastic wins against Newcastle and Everton.
The Italian has already made a number of signings this summer, with the likes of Vito Mannone, Jozy Altidore and Emanuele Giaccherini coming in. Bet365 price them at a long 7/2 (4.50) to progress to the final in the Asia Trophy.
Tottenham have had a poor pre-season so far, drawing both their matches against League One sides. Despite Gareth Bale opening the scoring against Swindon last week, Spurs could not hold on, conceding a late goal to draw 1-1.
Three days later Villas-Boas took a strong squad to Colchester, but neither side could break the deadlock in a 0-0 draw. Despite a slow start this summer, Bet365 price Spurs at 4/6 (1.66) to take victory. The same firm has the draw at 11/4 (3.75).
A bet that stands out in this fixture is Sunderland/Draw double chance at 11/10 (2.10) with Bet365. Di Canio has showed a lot of intent this summer with his signings and he looks to have put together a strong squad.
There were glimpses at the end of last season of what he can produce, and with Spurs currently unable to find a win in pre-season, the price of this double chance bet is too good to ignore.
